Mike's 2013 paddling year in review

I thought I would post some stats for my 2013 paddling year...

92 paddles, 1063 km, (742 paddles logged and 9327 km!)

My eighth year of the paddling blog. I have managed to go over the 1000 km goal each year.

Year Paddles Distance (km)
2013 92 1063
2012 87 1001
2011 105 1217
2010 124 1214
2009 116 1381
2008 75 1080
2007 66 1098
2006 77 1273
Total 742 9327

Countries paddled: Canada, Peru, Ecuador (Galapagos)

Highlights of the year included paddling in the highest navigable lake in the world, paddling in Galapagos, completing another leg of my "round the island" mission and "mini-mothershippping" with Monica aboard Natural C-lection in Kyuquot Sound and the Broughtons.

Most of what I said in my 2011 review ( remains true. Most of my paddles are out of Caddy Bay, Dan and Paulo remain my most regular companions, I still paddle a Tahe Greenland, but now I have an expedition duty Greenland T as my every day boat. The bib and tuilik are still my paddling gear of choice for most of the year. I still use GPSVisualizer for plotting my tracks downloaded from my Etrex Legend HCx
